Style XL 2015

So last Saturday I was lucky enough to attend Style XL which is the only Midlands based plus size fashion event. It is organised by the lovely Leah from Leah XL and was a truly fantastic day.

Leah really had poured her heart and soul into this event and I was so happy to see how many people came along on the day and enjoyed themselves.

For me it meant the chance to catch up with lots of my fellow blogger babes and get the chance to finally meet others!!

There were plenty of brands in attendance and I did end up buying a dress for £20 from Scarlett and Jo as they were selling off designs that were either no longer being made or pieces that didn't get put into production.

The catwalks throughout the day were fantastic with the ladies and gents really going for it!

I also had a bra fitting courtesy of the lovely ladies at Curvy Kate and bagged a bra for £15!!!

Talking of boobs I also got to meet the gorgeous Caroline from Curvy Wordy and headed off to her room for a bra trying on session!! Needless to say new bras are going to be ordered soon!

Some pictures from the day....

Having fun with the Bon Prix speech bubble (I won a goodie bag for this).

Trying out my selfie stick with the gorgeous Becky from Does My Blog Make Me Look Fat!

Reunited with the awesome Kathryn from Miss Kathryn's Misstakes after two long years!!

Tanya from Secret Plus Size Goddess and her amazing cleavage!!!!

Tanya, Becky and Caroline Curvy Wordy.

The after party on the Saturday night was also fab with entertainment and of course the final of Model XL. A huge well done to Sarah from Plus Size and Proud for winning two awards we are all so proud of you. 

Sadly I was so tired after Saturday that I didn't attend any of the workshops on the Sunday but I heard that they were very good. 

It just leaves me to say a few thank you's....

Leah, Claire and Leah's mum Rhona for all their hard work and dedication without which this event would never have happened. 

The brands for coming along and being so lovely and friendly especially the Curvy Kate ladies as they were very busy all day!!

The plus size blogging community which I am so proud to be a part of, it was lovely to see everyone and to be surrounded by so many awesome women! 

If you haven't already I have also done a YouTube video of the day which is below if you want to have a look.

I hope it won't be too long before I get to see everyone again as I miss you all already!
